Atma Vidya Vilasam - (1)
« on: September 03, 2008, 11:52:31 AM »
Dear non duel and everyone,  I could not contact Kamakoti
Peetam of Kanchipuram,  Tamil Nadu for the English translation.
But this morning I caught hold of an English translation.  All
Ramana-Maya!

Introduction:-

Atman is the subtlest thing in the universe, for the seekers
during their seeking stage.  The Vedas describe That like this:
The cow has tail, with tuft of hair on it.  Pluck one hair from
the tuft.  Make hundred parts of it.  Take that one hundredth
part of the hair and make one thousand parts.  Take one
thousandth part of it and make again one thousand parts.  That
one ultimate part is the Atman!  This imagery is to drive home
the subtlety of Atman, during stage of meditation, looking for
a Form for Atman.

Atman is all pervading, Pure Consciousnes and Infinite Bliss.  It
is cognized only through techniques of negation, as Not this,
Not this.  Atman is Ananda Swarupa. 

to be contd....

Arunachala Siva.

Dear Raju, Well said.  Ganapati, is AUM, the primordial sound,
whose purport and meaning has been described by his younger
brother, Skanda to Siva.  Ganapati Muni calls himself as the elder
brother of Bhagavan Sri Ramana, in Ramana Gita.

Arunachala Siva.
